Advocacy In Action

Many voices speaking in unison can have huge impacts and make differences in the lives of those with IDD.

2022 Advocacy Focuses

Membership provides our agency the ability to advocate legislatively at the state and national levels. As we move forward, our agency continues to face enormous challenges given the current economic climate of our state and nation. By having our largest Membership in ACHIEVE history, our advocacy efforts with legislative and government officials will have the biggest impact ever.

This year, advocacy is focused on many issues including:

Instituting a long-overdue 11% Cost of Living Adjustment to boost DSP wages.
Creating a personal income tax credit for recruiting quality direct care staff.
Developing an Office of the Chief Disability Officer.
Credentialing direct support as a viable career path.
Customizing employment programs to subdivide tasks into simpler components for meaningful
integrated employment for people who could effectively perform some but not all aspects of a job.
